I grew up in a suburb just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. After high school I moved to Springfield, MO, and attended a small liberal arts college--Drury, where I earned a BA in English and a minor in Business. My Secondary Education courses were completed at Southwestern in Georgetown, Texas. I have been teaching in Leander ISD since 1995, except for a two year stint in Florida during 2003-4. 

Teaching is my passion. I look forward to meeting new students and assisting them in their journey and discovery of academic writing and literature.
